] >> obama: four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost the auto industry was on the brink of collapse, the financial system has frozen up and because of the resilience and determination of the american people we have begun to fight our way back. we have seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back and house has begun to rise. but we all know we still have a lot of work to do. so the question is not where we have been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i have a different view. i think we have got to invest in education and training. i think it's important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america. that we change our tax code to make sure we're helping small businesses and companies here in the united states, that we take some of the money we're saving as we wind down two wars to rebuild america. now it ultimately is going to

into this, but year over year, the obama administration has been too optimistic. for years, pretty much every year so far, they've said the economy is going to recover faster than it actually has. and there are reasons it didn't. europe imploded. there was a tsunami that hit japan, rocking global demand. the arab spring sent oil prices skyrocketing. and at home, we did things like the debt ceiling, which didn't help. but they stop sounding like explanations and begin sounding like excuses. so president obama needs to be able to make the case that the economy is just worse. and there wasn't -- with a very bad hand, his policies did about what could have been expected, about as good as we have been have done. romney wants to make it sound like it was a set of bad policies that led to a slow and sluggish recovery. >> what about governor romney in terms of what his most challenging question is, the thing he's least looking forward to talking about? >> it's flip of that. if president obama needs to defend why the recovery hasn't been quicker, romney needs to explain why he would actuall

reason president obama struggled tonight. he struggled the last four years. you can't make a great defense of a record that's not been great. you can't communicate well things you have not delivered well. president obama has not had the four years he wanted to have. he had to talk about it and defend it tonight. he simply -- neil: what do you make, congressman, the argument, that the president is the champ; right? he survived without getting knocked down or knocked out certainly, the default goes to the champ. the champ regimely gets the decision. >> well, i don't know. i saw moments where it looked like he was on the canvas. when mitt romney was coming barks, and point by point saying, yes, you cut medicare -- neil: the five trillion, did you, you did not -- >> here's why it register. anyone on medicare knows the government does not give you a direct amount of money. the government reimburses the doctors. if the government cuts the money that reimburses your doctors, that's how the government cuts medicare. few understand that. neil: at the very least, you think mitt romney might

guy who has been very strong for obama over the years. andrew sullivan of the daily beast. he wrote this last night, basically just at the end of the debate. this was a dissaster for the president for the key people he needs to reach. his effete wonkish lectures may have jolted a lot of independents into giving romney a second look. obama tyke looked tired, even bored. he kept looking down. he wasn't there. the person with authority on that stage was romney. offered by one of the lamest moderators ever and seized with relish. this was romney the salesman and my gut tells me he sold a few voters on a change tonight. it's beyond depressing, but it's true. gentlemen, that's a tough assessment. it's matched by this, i'm showing you one of the strongest headlines, a full banner basically giving it completely to romney last night. governor rendell, you have been in a lot of tough debates. i don't know what you thought. i guess i'm known as an obama supporter and i certainly wanted him to do well last night, and yet i don't get it. i don't quite get it. i thought romney's performance, let'

. >> moderator: mr. president. obama: let's talk about taxes because they think it is instructive. four years ago when i stood on the stage, i said that i would cut taxes for middle-class families and that's exactly what i did. we cut taxes for middle-class families by about $3600. and the reason is because i believe that we do best when the middle class is doing well. and by giving them those taxes, they have a little more money in their pocket, so maybe they can bite in your car. they are certainly a better position to weather the extraordinary recession we went through. they can buy a computer for the kid going to college. they can spend my money, business have more profits and hire more workers. now, governor promised proposal that has been promoted for 18 months calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of $2 trillion of additional spending for military. and he is saying that he is going to pay by closing loopholes and deductions. the problem is he's been asked over 100 times how you would close those deductions and loopholes and he hasn't been able to identify them. i'm going to make an im

years ago, in oxford, mississippi, then senator obama preparing for his first presidential debate against john mccain. both candidates right now, mitt romney and barack obama, no doubt, very nervous. i'm nervous, just looking at that picture. diane? >> okay, jake. i will see you tonight for the big event. and i want to bring in co-anchor of "good morning america" and anchor of "this week," my co-anchor tonight, george stephanopoulos. such a night after this long road. what are these two men thinking right now? >> reporter: probably exactly the same thing. tonight, don't take the other guy's bait. play your game. but there is more pressure on mitt romney tonight. you look at the polls right now, he is behind nationally, probably behind even more in the battlegrounds. he needs a circuit breaker and he probably has to do something that gives people that say right now they're voting for the president, to give him a second look. >> so, give all of us a kind of viewer's guide to what they're prepped to do. what do we watch for tonight? >> reporter: watch for almost every time mitt romne

the issues with these tapes is that they are so old, first of all obama now has a four year record, actually that romney should be focusing on and he should be talking completely about the economy. and if he wants to go back to some 4-year-old tape where obama said something and tried to convince americans that president obama is some sort of race monger. i think it would back fire. >> what if president obama and we believe he dual that leslie says you are trying to divide americans 47%. you don't believe they are worthy. it seems to me fairly powerful defense saying wait a minute. taking my remarks out of context. you said this about race. you said this about wealthy people. no, yes? is that a shield he should use? i don't think mitt romney should bring up anything with race. he should clarify 47% remark. i think because tonight is really about trying to get back some of that small lead that the president has and trying to close that gap in the polls that the president is leading by right now. that is what mitt romney needs to accomplish tonight with the people watching. those tha

months ago and the last debate that barack obama had was four years ago. and the people he's used to sparring with are reporters. >> how did he prepare? how did the president prepare for this? >> we got 45 minutes in before we got a ryan budget mentioned. mitt romney made the choice to put ryan on the ticket. when we look at where the polls started to separate before the convention, right around when ryan was put on the ticket. when do the numbers on medicare and the polling start to go upside down for the republicans? when ryan is put on the ticket. yet we get 45 minutes through the debate before paul ryan is mentioned. he's the incarnation of the modern republican party which will inherit the power that you give to mitt romney since they will be governing from the house most likely. that is the key thing to remind people there is a governing of the republican party that already exists. it's like nailing gel oto the wall. no. you are tied to an actual institutional govern body which actually has a record, which actually is going to propose and vote for things that you actually put o
